I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we reach out to You Judge of all the earth and entreat You to do rightly. Bring the prodigal Supreme Court to its senses. Cause the Court to return home to its proper role in the government. Help any Justice who does not know You to come to You through Jesus Christ.

The Lord downloaded His heart for the Supreme Court to Phillip Jauregui, one of the attorneys who prepared the amicus brief IFA recently filed in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case, which will be heard by the Justices in early December.  In an Oct. 27 interview with IFA recently, Jauregui, who advocates for Christian causes through his organization Judicial Action Group (www.JudicialActionGroup.com), shared the revelation he received about the Court.

According to Jauregui, the Court currently operates on a flawed idea of its role in the federal government.  He explained, “Judicial supremacy is the false idea that the courts are supreme above the other two branches of government.  And it manifests in judicial activism, because when courts decide they have the final say on every matter that’s constitutional, they put themselves above the other branches.”

This imbalance enables the Court to perpetuate errors or even deliberate distortions about the Constitution.  According to Jauregui, 1973’s Roe v. Wade case is an example of just such a distortion. “But when no one is above [the Justices] or no one’s equal to them, no one can check and balance them because they are supreme.  They are judicial supremacists,”  he said.

In Roe v. Wade, the Court went beyond interpreting the law to acting as legislators, according to Jauregui.  “Article 1, Section 1 of the United States Constitution says all legislative power herein granted shall be vested in Congress.  Well, all legislative power means all law-making power. So if all is vested in Congress, then none is in the Court.  So the court can’t make laws,” Jauregui said.  “When we hear the term ‘case law,’ it’s an oxymoron.  Cases don’t make law.  Cases are supposed to apply law to two parties in a law suit to determine who wins and who loses.  But courts don’t make law.”

The Lord is calling the Court back to its proper role, Jauregui said.  About three and a half years ago, the Lord gave Jauregui a vision of the Court and an overwhelming infusion of love for its members.  “And it really shocked me.  It was so out of the blue.  And I thought, ‘That had to be God.  That was so odd.’  And so I just said, ‘Lord, can You explain that to me?,’”  Jauregui related.  “He said, “I had to show you a picture of the Court and love for the Court, because that’s what I want you to have for where I want to take the Court.’”

The intensity of heavenly love revealed to Jauregui that he had had opposite emotions toward the Court because of the many evils its Justices had allowed — even imposed — on America.   But the Lord wanted Jauregui to get His vision for the Court.  “The Lord explained faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  So you can see what they’ve done, but can you see what I want them to become.  And so that’s why I had to give you that picture of love because I want you to pray for that,” Jauregui said.

The Biblical text the Lord shared was Luke 15: 11-32.  Jauregui said, “The prodigal son had a wonderful heritage and a name and a position under his father.  He didn’t need anything else.  Our judges have been given a valuable role in our republic.  They’ve put on a robe.  They’re honored.  They don’t need anything else.  They don’t need to be lawmakers.  They just need to be honorable judges.”

But like the prodigal son, the Court was discontented.  “But the prodigal son decided in his own wicked thinking that he wanted more so he left his father’s house, went to a foreign land, took his father’s money and spent it on wild living and sin,” Jauregui explained.

“The Court likewise was given a wonderful role, but they departed from their role.  They decided they wanted more.  They wanted also to be legislators.  They sinned.  They engaged in all sorts of wickedness.  You could say their decisions have led to the murder of 70 million unborn children in this nation.”

The turn in the biblical parable happens when the prodigal son comes to his senses and realizes he can return to his father’s home.  Hoping simply to survive, the prodigal returns to thrive as his father welcomes him with joy and celebration.  The older brother, however, resents the younger profligate’s return.   According to Jauregui, the Lord wants to bring the Supreme Court back to its senses, and Christians need to be ready to welcome and celebrate the returned Court.

“The Lord was basically saying to me, ‘Don’t be the older brother’ when the Court comes home,” Jauregui said.  “Don’t affirm the sin and the wickedness that they’ve engaged in.  Demand that they come home.  Demand that they return to their noble role, but when they do, welcome them.  Have a heart for them….God has to give us a picture to pray for that or else it’s really hard to have vision and faith for something that you can’t see.”

Jauregui believes we are on the cusp of the Court’s return to its senses, but the journey home may take some detours.  “In that parable, Jesus said that the prodigal son went to a far country, so even though the parable is not a real story, the journey back wasn’t instantaneous,” Jauregui said.  “It’s not as though the son was on the other side of the hill and it took him two minutes to get home.”

It’s important to be patient, Jauregui said.  “This returning of the Court is a process; it’s not instantaneous.  And so continue to pray for them and if they have two steps forward, one back, don’t let the one step back cause you to throw up your hands and say all is lost.  No, keep praying because it’s a journey for the Court to get back to where it needs to be.  Judicial renewal — the Court returning to its proper role — that’ll take time.  And keep praying for it and don’t quit and don’t be discouraged,” Jauregui said.

Praying for the Court to return may require emotional energy, too.  Perhaps more than anything, it may take humbling to avoid falling into the “older brother” attitude.  But to regain a high court that rules righteously and provides a true balance and check on the executive and legislative branches would be well worth the cost.

Let us join Phillip Jauregui in this prayer for the Court’s return.


Holy Father, thank You for the vision and prayer strategy that You shared with Phillip Jauregui.  We bless You for it and for Your heart for the Supreme Court and the Justices.  We take this moment to forgive the Court and all the justices, clerks, and aides past and present who ruled in ungodly and wicked ways.  We forgive them for grasping for legislative power, rather than containing themselves to their honored and important role as written in the U.S. Constitution. 

Please forgive and cover the ground of trespass with the Blood of Jesus.  Recover this ground again from evil and release the debt, especially the death of the millions and the encouragement and codification of immorality and evil. 

Please give us each the vision and the love for the Court You shared with Phillip so we can pray with Your vision and Your heart for the Court and the justices.

Call the Court and its justices, clerks, and aides back to their senses.  Help each one to pray as the prodigal son did, “I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.’”   Draw each justice to You.  Encourage the ones who know You with Your Presence, Your Vision, and Your Hope.  Please soften the hearts of those who do not know You; show them their need for You and the futility of life without You.  Show them the way home to You through Jesus Christ.

Help us and the Christian community as a whole to avoid becoming the embittered, older brother.  Give us patience for the Court’s journey home.  Encourage us and give us fortitude and perseverance in our prayer.  Let us pray in hope and celebrate in rejoicing for the work You are doing for and with the Supreme Court and its justices, clerks, and aides.  We decree that the rod of the wicked will not rest on the land of the righteous lest the righteous sin.  In Jesus’ Name.  We agree that the Judge of all the earth will do rightly.  Amen.

Great article, Joyce!

Lord, we pray that these Justices will fear You, more than man or agendas, more than their biases, and would render godly decisions. We pray that You would bring Your Word to the minds of those who know You and give them the courage they need to render righteous decisions! In Jesus name!

Thank you Phillip for sharing your vision God gave you, and for co-laboring with Bill in writing the amicus brief that we can all be a part of! This is a God moment! So wonderful! God is doing something in this moment that we can believe and know – that HE will reverse this wickedness! Just like HE did with slavery in Abraham Lincoln’s time. Let us all keep pressing in to Christ and His will! God bless this amazing organization!

I listened in to the First Friday prayer call yesterday, when Phillip and William spoke so movingly about the amicus brief they wrote. I have always prayed for righteousness, truth and justice to prevail as the Court deliberates the abortion case in December. But listening to the Prayer Call, I was suddenly overwhelmed by a great love for the Justices, and began to pray that they would feel the love of God surrounding them. I pray with all my heart that the Courtroom will be filled with love as the Justices hear this case–love for them, love for the unborn, and love for the mothers who need to be nurtured and guided through what can be a heart-breaking time. Love, and only love, will bring this case to the resolution God desires. Thank you, Phillip, for sharing your thoughts.

The Lord has spoken to my heart about my unloving attitude about a situation and people. We are the body of Christ, so how can we neglect or reject part of the body. We are to love the unlovely and the hateful and mean who are acting against the Word of God, though professing believers. Some on the court do profess faith in Christ. Pray to Holy Spirit to revive their commitment to the Lord Jesus as the supreme ruler of the universe. Pray for their minds to be challenged if they turn away from the law of the land, to their own devices. Prov. 3:5-7 “Lean not unto your own understanding.” We trust in the Lord Jesus, Amen, and amen.

Thank You, Father, for Your goodness and Grace. Thank You for Your Loving kindness and tender mercies. Father, every life is precious to You. Every person in this earth is created in Your image. Children are a heritage and a reward from You. Today, Father, I remind You of my petition to You for Roe v. Wade to be overturned. Thank You that the hearts of the Supreme Court Justices are in Your hands and their hearts are turned towards You. Thank You for guiding them, directing them and anointing them with Your wisdom as they wield their influence. Thank You, Father, that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, in Jesus name, amen. Genesis 1:27, Psalm 127:3, Colossians 3:2, John 14:13-14

Point well taken, Dorothy. The term “downloaded” was not Phillip’s word, but my attempt to communicate his experience with the Lord. I shall be more mindful of my word choice in future and thank you for this timely warning. We are indeed in the days in which deception has a grip on the nation and world. Many blessings, Joyce Swingle

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that Your wisdom be showered on the Supreme Court and that they will make deciosins based on Your Truth and that will honor and please You. Cause the court to return home to it’s proper role in the Government and help any Justice who does not know you to come to You throught Jesus Christ. In Jesus Precious and Holy Name, Amen.

Be careful of people who use “the Lord downloaded” this is not of God. The Spirit may give wisdom or visions but this is not a download. We must be discerning of what people think the Lord is saying and doing. Many have listened to demons without knowing. A word of caution.

Wow, what a wonderful prayer for the Supreme Court justices. And what a wonderful word of hope for them through this man. Thank you Lord🙏

    Yes! Praying in agreement.
    This is especially encouraging to my heart, for the Lord gave me a similar vision for our school superintendent who professes to be Christian but is leading the district on an ungodly path. I had a hard heart toward him but after an encounter ( divine appointment?) with him my heart was softened to see how lost he is. My prayers for him now come from a heart of love- God showed me His heart for this lost man- which are more powerful than coming from a heart of frustration.

    Yes, they church has offered “love” to these folks, which has led us into these ungodly times. We loved them in their sin and didn’t offer TRUTH because we didn’t want to offend. (So it wasn’t really love at all.)

    Now the Lord is showing me that bringing them TRUTH – without love – is no better….

    Prayers for His truth to be embraced by the lost, while having His heart, are powerful.

Lord, break our hearts for these 9 justices. Thank you that we have them and not something so much worse. Wake us up to pray for them. Pray that their hearts are broken over things that break yours.

Last week we prayed for our 9 justices by name. Amazing that many intercessors couldn’t pronounce the name in front of them–so unfamiliar it was. We must do better.

I, as a legitimate son of God, true follower of Christ, will accept with living arms the prodigal Supreme Court members who choose to repent and honor Christ in their seats …but if they choose to continue in their wicked ways longer and longer, without a true intent to honor my Lord…allowing the killing and more killing of babies and passing other wicked laws, I deliver them and their descendants who follow their footsteps to Satan, with the hopes that they will repent in their pain (that is also biblical…look at the story of the warlock Elimas in the Bible)…I deliver them to the punishing and judgement of God id they continue in their ways in the reasonable time the Lord gives them to change.

Enough is enough brothers and sisters! Don’t be weak in the Lord. The Lord is merciful and full of grace in Christ…but He is also consuming fire.

      Sure brother….are these wicked people higher than the lowest of us? Does God have lower standards of morals for these judges and special privileges for them , to bend indefinitely to ther wicked and cowardly ways?

      No! To whomever is given much, MUCH will be required of them.

      Mercy? Yes. But ONLY I they repent and honor God in the time God gives them…If not, punishment snd suffering for them. Judgement.

      I pray as David. David had rhe mercy of the Lord too.

Dennis Prager has said the Supreme Court gives recommendations. But it’s taken to be law. Phillip is correct – they’ll be taken back to the original intent. Lord, May we see it’s a recommendation and speak it. Help us to say it is a recommendation; not law.
